ATHOL — The Tool Town Live 2019 concert series continues Saturday, Aug. 24, 7-9 p.m., at the Uptown Common, near 1500 Main St. The free show will feature award-winning group, the Reprobate Blues Band.

The Reprobate Blues Band plays hard-rocking, authentic, soul-igniting Blues. The Reprobates include Charlie Scott on lead vocals, Bo Henderson on guitar and vocals, Janet Henderson on bass and vocals, James Bennett on saxophones, and Dale Monette on drums. The band is heavily influenced by the blues pedigrees issued from people like Buddy Guy, Junior Wells, John Lee Hooker, Luther Georgia Boy Shaky Snake Johnson and Robert Junior Lockwood. They’ve received extensive radio airplay throughout the United States and are one of the premier touring blues bands in the Northeast, sharing stages with the likes of James Montgomery, Duke Robillard, Professor Harp, and countless other legends.

Johnny Memphis says: “Charlie Scott is a strong, soulful vocalist and the band has a gruff and gritty sound that connects blues and rock’n’roll in the same way the early Rolling Stones did.”

If there is a chance of rain in the forecast, the concert will be held in Memorial Hall at 584 Main St. Refreshments including hot dogs, popcorn, soft drinks, dessert bars and more will be on sale at the event. Scotties Potties provides facilities for Tool Town Live concerts. There will be free candy at the concert while supplies last thanks to West Brook Tree Farm.

This program is supported in part by a grant from The Athol Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency and 97.3FM WJDF. Tool Town Live 2019 concerts are sponsored in part by Witty’s Funeral Home, Flint’s Auto Sales, Kessler Investments, Pete’s Tire Barn, Ethan Stone, LaBelle Roofing, Osprey Entertainment, Elwood Sound and Media, Flint’s Repairs, Scooby’s Custom Cornholes and more, Al’s Quick Lube, Silhouettes Best Little Hair House in Athol, and West Brook Tree Farm.
